“Startlingly well sung and theatrically inventive”
– Evening Standard
We were Executive Producers for Silent Opera: L’Orfeo over the last six months and now the show is closed. We raised a budget of £140,000 to deliver our largest scale project to date. With a team of hundreds of talented singers, musicians, craftsmen and technicians, we put on a show that was nothing short of spectacular. Under the creative direction of Silent Opera founder Daisy Evans, the show took place 17 times in February at Trinity Buoy Wharf (in some of the coldest weather we’ve had over a very cold winter!).
“Audiences enraptured by this vital new setting”
More press quotes and production photos can be found on their website, but our interest in the piece was universally recognised – Silent Opera, which employs digital technology to revitalise opera, and to reconnect a great art form with a public interest, is an exciting company. We are proud to say that under our guidance for their last three shows, Silent Opera have retained their place as one of the most innovative companies working in opera. And what’s more, our Creative Producership has ensured that over half the audience are under 30, and the same ratio are attending their first ever live classical experience.
We have been examining the next routes to go down with Silent Opera and will stay updated here on our website.
